Why y’all:

    LeBron James and Kevin Durant left Utah Jazz players to be picked last Thursday night when the two NBA superstars selected their teams for the upcoming All-Star Game. While "NBA on TNT" host Charles Barkley called the decision slanderous because the Jazz are among the top teams in the league right now, James explained why players like Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert weren’t picked right away. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "There’s no slander to the Utah Jazz," the Los Angeles Lakers star said. "You’ve got to understand, just like in video games growing up, we never played with Utah. As great as Karl Malone and John Stockton was, we would never pick those guys in video games. Never." Mitchell and Gobert were picks Nos. 22 and 23, respectively. Mitchell landed on Team Durant and Gobert landed on Team James. JAZZ'S DONOVAN MITCHELL SAYS OFFICIATING 'IS GETTING...
    New York : When we think of adipose tissue, the unpopular “love handles” or “tires” inevitably come to mind, which today we perceive as a problem. However, we must bear in mind that the ability to store the surplus energy ingested as fat deposits has allowed our species to survive. In other words, there is a lot to be thankful for. The main fat reservoir in our body is white adipose tissue, but there is also brown adipose tissue. The latter has an opposite function, since allows us to “burn” stored fat, dissipating energy as heat. That makes it an interesting target in the fight against obesity and its complications. Our sedentary lifestyle causes us to accumulate fat, but some of it could help us lose weight, according to the latest research. (Photo: .)

Their arguments got a whole lot stronger after Thursday’s events. © Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports LeBron James and Kevin Durant got to pick their teams for the All-Star Game on Thursday. Though Utah had two players make the team from the West — Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell — both players were chosen last. What was the reason for that?

Recent reports suggest that the Seattle Seahawks are in fact discussing deals with multiple teams around the NFL. © Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Meanwhile, Wilson’s agent has gone to Seattle with teams he would waive his no-trade clause in order to be moved. That list shockingly includes Jon Gruden and the Las Vegas Raiders. It’s somewhat surprising. Of the other three teams, both the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints make sense. However, Las Vegas joins the Chicago Bears as two non-contending squads that could get involved.

That simple expression stunned royal watchers, who say the nickname for the close-knit members of the highest echelons of royalty is never used by any of them in public, according to Marie Claire. It is also helping to expose a moniker that has been around for decades, and one with questionable connotations for the monarchy, which Forbes reported in 2017 was worth a staggering $88 billion.

    NEW YORK – Suddenly, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s popularity and power are plummeting. But the fall has been building for months — and the sexual-harassment allegations that he’s so focused on handling (badly) are just the latest stick on the bonfire. Consider the Emerson College poll findings: Approval of his job performance is down from a stellar 71 percent last April to just 38 percent now, with a full 48 percent of New Yorkers disapproving. ACCUSER'S ATTORNEY SLAMS CUOMO APOLOGY AS 'FULL OF FALSEHOODS' Meanwhile, the Legislature is suddenly but rapidly moving to revoke most of his pandemic-emergency powers as soon as Friday. He knows he’s in trouble: His extraordinary press conference Wednesday featured little of the bluster and bombast that he used in the past to sidestep reporters’ questions and lawmakers’ demands. But, as we note elsewhere, he still bombed. READ MORE AT NYPOST.COM He could legitimately claim that the harassment allegations remain just that...

    Let's be blunt: America's had an absolutely terrible pandemic. The world's No1 superpower yesterday passed the devastating coronavirus-related death toll of 500,000 people. That's 20 percent of all global deaths, in a country that has 4.25 percent of the world's population. It also means the US has now suffered more COVID victims than the total number of Americans who died on the battlefields of World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combined. These are all horrific mind-numbing statistics, and I'm in no doubt where much of the blame of this should go: Donald Trump. The recently ousted president handled this crisis catastrophically badly – refusing to take it seriously from the start when it erupted last February, ignoring the science, publicly shaming his top medical experts, and spray-gunning dangerous unproven 'cure' theories.

    She was the perfect girl. The girl with the eyes of the United States. The star that every teenager wanted to be. Pop princess. Britney Spears She became, shortly after the release of her first single in 1998, one of the best-selling artists in the history of music.. Within a few years, he had become a true legend. A living myth that, currently, and with only 39 years of age, is withdrawn from the media spotlight, locked in her Los Angeles home and without legal power to make her own decisions or manage your own finances.

    Calculating Your Stimulus Check: How Much (if Any) Will You Get? Sebastian Vettel Is Selling a Bunch of His Supercars What’s a 4-year-old supposed to be like? In pandemic times, when I—the first-time parent of such a beast—have less of a chance to observe other 4-year-olds for comparison than I otherwise might, the books of 20th-century psychologist Louise Bates Ames have proved their value again and again. “For the most part,” she wrote back in 1989 in Your Four-Year-Old: Wild and Wonderful, “we have found the boy and girl of this age to be joyous, exuberant, energetic, ridiculous, untrammeled—ready for anything.” “Untrammeled,” I repeat to myself, regarding my own child as she runs naked into the snow wearing only her rain boots to hug me as I return at the end of the day. “Ridiculous,” I remember, trying to weather her endless imperious demands. This is the value of Ames’...
    (CNN Business)Early in the pandemic, Jane Cox Childress brought her teenage son warm cookies at his desk during a remote learning session. She received a text message in response: "Mom, could you please not bring me anything when I'm in class?" Childress said she "learned quickly to be more respectful when he was in class." After that, the two started exchanging a constant stream of texts throughout the day as they continued to do their respective work remotely: Are you ready for lunch? Is this your last class? Here's a heart emoji or two. "It reminds me of the olden days when I was a teenager. Some of my friends with fancy houses had intercoms," Childress said. "We use texting a lot like that now. It beats yelling up and down the stairs."A lot has been written about how technology has allowed us to feel closer to people outside our...
    Every February, America celebrates Black History Month. Jackie Robinson documentaries grace the TV, Frederick Douglass photos cover classroom windows, and Martin Luther King Jr. biographies line bookstore displays. These are some of the monumental figures that blazed a path forward first toward freedom, and then toward equality, for Black Americans.   These certainly are figures worth celebrating and causes worth teaching, but in reality, Black men and women have been bettering the lives of Americans in myriad ways. An everyday task as simple as going to the grocery store can give you a wonderful lesson in Black history.    Before leaving the house, you reach down to tie your shoes, ready to walk out the door. In 1883 a young black man by the name of Jan Ernst Matzeliger invented a quicker way to make shoes called "lasting," which attached the top half of the shoe to the sole.   JEREMY HUNT: BLACK HISTORY VS.

    The Conversation Spain Taking an antigen test to party: the downside of testing negative Shutterstock / MandriaPix The COVID-19 pandemic is producing significant restrictions in our lives. For almost a year we have lived surrounded by precautions and control measures that cause us “pandemic fatigue”, and we would all like to have solutions and shortcuts so that our life resembles that of the old normality. There is little doubt that the main solution is the vaccine, and in any case, continue to comply with protection measures. But the option of taking a previous test is also often considered, which, in case of a negative result, could allow us to go out to party, go to concerts, “enjoy life”, or meet someone on Tinder with “safety”. In this way, the test would be a safe conduct, a protective shield that would make it possible to compensate for relaxation in other measures:...

Women seem to have success with the challenge, and are able...

    A SEX EXPERT has revealed the bedroom act that some men do that women can hate - and why they do it.  Nadia Bokody, from Australia, wrote for News.com.au: “I once dated a guy who put his hand around my neck while we were having sex. 2Sexpert Nadia Bokody said that she regularly hears how men think women what what they see in porn “Not in an attempt to cause me harm, but because – as he later revealed – he’d seen it performed in porn, and assumed I’d be into it. “What was most striking about this encounter, was the fact he didn’t ask me if I’d like it first, because he was afraid of looking inept.” Nadia said she often hears time and time again from male readers how they don’t talk to their partners in the bedroom as they’ve been taught men should know what they are...
    YOU know the feeling. You're falling into a state of deep sleep when your body suddenly jolts, waking you (and sometimes your partner) up in an instant. Turns out it's pretty normal, and there's a simple explanation for the "hypnic jerk" - and it’s all down to sleep deprivation. 3Jolting or twitching in our sleep is pretty normal, experts sayCredit: Getty Images - Getty Rafael Pelayo, a sleep specialist at the Stanford Sleep Medicine Center, spoke to Mic about it and claims many people feel it most in their arms and legs. However, he explained that it can also cause your head to snap back suddenly if you're sitting in an upright position.

    We need to offer every high-risk American a first dose before doling out second doses to save lives and prevent the spread of COVID-19 variants.   Tragically, only 64% of COVID-19 vaccines distributed in the United States have been administered.   One reason for the slow rollout: some public health officials are holding back vaccines for scheduled second doses. But to save more American lives and beat back the threat of new variants, states should use their current supply to offer a first dose to all seniors and high-risk Americans before we dole out second doses.  SEN. MARCO RUBIO: PUT STUDENTS FIRST AND OPEN SCHOOLS – HERE'S WHAT WE SHOULD DO IF TEACHER UNIONS REFUSE When the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were studied and authorized by the FDA, they were administered in two doses, with the second dose given three or four weeks later. That led some states officials to think that two doses are required to protect someone. But that’s not true.  Many U.S. experts in the medical establishment have been oddly dismissive of the strong protection offered...

    This article is republished from The Conversation. Just hours after taking the oath of office, President Joe Biden signed nine executive orders – far surpassing every other president’s first day on the job in modern history. These orders advance urgent issues like COVID-19 response and undo many of Trump’s policies on immigration and environmental deregulation. Biden is not the first U.S. president to issue an executive order, and he certainly won’t be the last. My own research shows executive orders have been a mainstay in American politics – with limitations. Article continues after advertisement What is an executive order? Though the Constitution plainly articulates familiar presidential tools like vetoes and appointments, the real executive power comes from reading between the lines. Presidents have long interpreted the Constitution’s Article 2 clauses – like “the executive power shall be vested in a President” and “he shall take care that the laws be...
    This January 20, 2021 will be a historic day for our neighbor to the north and one that the world will surely not forget. Well, after four years in office – which felt like an eternity – and after the assault on the Capitol a few weeks ago, Donald Trump left the post of president of the United States and Joe Biden took power. And undoubtedly the investiture ceremony was marked by many moments. The first and most obvious is that Trump was leaving the White House. However, during this special day we had the chance to see an emotional speech delivered by a 22-year-old girl and Kamala Harris became the first woman to assume the position of vice president of the gabacho. But we are almost certain that many will remember him for the presentation of Lady Gaga at this very important event. Photo: . You can...
    Yankees Rumors/News: Former All-Star catcher details why Gary Sanchez is struggling By: Alexander Wilson January 21, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditEvery year seems to result in a downward spiral for New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez. At 28 years old, he still in his physical prime, but following his 2017 campaign he posted a .278 average with 33 homers, he’s gradually taken steps backward. While he did hit 34 homers in 2019, he finished with a .232 average and struck out 28% of the time. You could argue that Sanchez is simply the type of player that trades strikeouts for homers, and that is 100% justifiable. However, his inconsistencies have begun to create confusion within the fanbase, specifically regarding his future with the team and whether the Yankees can trust him at the position over the long term. His facial expressions during games don’t...

    Why are there oil pumpjacks laboring away along the La Cienega shortcut through Baldwin Hills to LAX? Why, until 2017, was an oil derrick pumping vigorously on the grounds of Beverly Hills High School, concealed in a flower-painted tower? Would Manhattan allow an oil rig right outside Grand Central Station? Would Paris permit a derrick to go bob-bobbing along behind the Eiffel Tower? Well, how many barrels a day are we talking about? Like sunshine, oil, too, is nature’s gift to Los Angeles. Hollywood is more dazzling, aerospace more thrilling, but it’s oil — noisome, filthy crude oil – that for more than 120 years has helped to make Los Angeles an unlikely petro-capital, and to make Angelenos rich. By 1926, when crabby Baltimore journalist H. L. Mencken complained that L.A. “stank of orange blossoms,” it also stank of oil. At the La Brea tarpits (whose Anglo-Spanish name, translated literally,...

    In a five-day period that saw the Senate flip to Democrats, chaos on Capitol Hill after a scary insurrection, discussions of a second impeachment of President Donald Trump or invocation of the 25th Amendment to remove him from office, new horrendous daily death tolls from the pandemic, and a Jill Schlesinger  disappointing monthly jobs report, US stocks somehow managed to rise in value. What gives? The recitation of those facts may have caused some of you to consider pushing the sell button, but investors that I have spoken with over the past few weeks, seem to believe that the aftermath of the violent attack on Congressional lawmakers will dissipate and a Biden administration will restore order. And while the resurgent spread of COVID-19 is alarming, the view is that vaccine dissemination and adoption will control the virus over the course of the next six to nine months. Related Articles ...

    The House of Representatives voted 232-197 Wednesday to impeach President Trump for alleged "incitement of insurrection" in connection with the mob chaos at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Whether or not the impeachment results in a conviction, it marks a historic moment in that no prior U.S. president has been impeached twice. But it also raises questions about whether a trial can even be held once the president leaves office. The earliest the Senate could receive the article of impeachment would be Jan. 19, a day before President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, according to Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. A trial could go on for weeks, if it takes place at all. TRUMP IMPEACHED BY HOUSE OVER CAPITOL RIOTS, BECOMES FIRST PRESIDENT TO FACE REBUKE TWICE J. Michael Luttig, a judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit from 1991 to 2006, argued in a Washington Post...
    President Trump was impeached for a second time on Wednesday with the help of 10 House Republicans, while 197 other Republicans voted against impeaching him for "incitement of insurrection." But another four House Republicans did not vote at all: Texas Rep. Kay Granger, Maryland Rep. Andy Harris, North Carolina Rep. Greg Murphy, and Florida Rep. Daniel Webster. Three of them have said they opposed impeachment despite not being in Washington, D.C., to cast a vote. House rules adopted due to the coronavirus pandemic allow for present members to vote by proxy for those absent, and while some Republicans took advantage of that on Wednesday to cast votes against impeachment, the practice has been criticized and opposed by many GOP lawmakers. Granger, the top Republican on the House Appropriations Committee, tested positive for the coronavirus last week and "immediately quarantined." Her office did not immediately respond for clarification...
    VIDEO3:3103:31General Motors CEO on the company's electric vehicle futureSquawk Alley Shares of General Motors opened Wednesday above $50 for the first time ever after CEO Mary Barra and other executives laid out an array of future business plans at the CES technology conference – from electric vehicles to flying cars. As Barra put it, the mission of the Tuesday presentation was to promote "confidence" in the automaker's business, including GM's "triple zero" vision of transportation without emissions, congestion and crashes. GM used the event to flex its size and scale more than ever before. It showed how its integrating new businesses and why it refused to spin off its EV business last year amid pressure from Wall Street. "We believe investors should prepare for a profound narrative change at GM put into action in 2021," Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas wrote in a note to investors Tuesday. "There is a...

    Raider Nation has its own version of voter fraud, and it involved Darren Waller being left off the 2020 NFL All-Pro Team. The Chiefs’ Travis Kelce was the selection as first-team tight end, and deservedly so. Kelce had 105 receptions for an NFL record (for a tight end) 1,416 yards, 11 touchdowns and 79 first downs. Waller broke Tim Brown’s franchise record with 107 receptions for 1,196 yards, nine touchdowns and 69 first downs. So given the Chiefs are the defending Super Bowl champions and Kelce outperformed Waller in every statistical area except receptions, it was clear Kelce was choice No. 1 and Waller No. 2. But here’s the rub — the A.P. uses a national 50-member voting panel (none of them are Associated Press writers) and Kelce got all 50 votes. If Waller had received even a single first-team vote over Kelce, he would...

    WELCOME to 2021, arguably rugby league's most important year since 1996. One in which the World Cup should dominate everything. 2 England boss Shaun Wane's side should be the priority this year - as should other Test nations As an Englishman, I will say England should take priority over any club. Same applies to Wales, Scotland and Ireland. No offence to the great work done by clubs around the country but the fortunes of the national side are bigger. Imagine the boost seeing Shaun Wane's men lifting the trophy at Old Trafford on November 27 would bring to the 13-a-side code.

    When you think of Black billionaires, the names Oprah Winfrey and Jay-Z may instantly come to mind. However, it was Reginald Lewis who paved the way for American moguls in the 1980s. The lawyer and entrepreneur was the first Black man in America to conduct a $985 million deal. After purchasing McCall Pattern Company for $22.5 million and selling it at a 90-1 return, Lewis then bought Beatrice International Foods in an almost billion-dollar deal, renamed it TLC Beatrice Holdings Inc. and within a year propelled the company to over $1 billion in sales (making it the first Black-owned company to have more than $1 billion in annual sales).

    The NBA is a league that has been dominated by multiple superstar duos. Be it Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal or Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, superstar duos are pivotal to the side. In the 1990s, apart from the obvious Jordan and Pippen, one specific duo terrorized the league. This was the duo of one of the most skillful point guards, Penny Hardaway, and the other was a dynamic big man, Shaquille O’Neal. If not for the injuries to Penny, the duo could have dominated the East for years to come. Penny Hardaway reveals why he wanted to play with Shaquille O’Neal The 4-Time All-Star had an instant impact when he entered the NBA. In the second year itself, he made it to an All-Star game and entered the All-NBA team. Hardaway recently interacted in Basketball News’ ‘The Rematch’.

    All the monkeys at a NASA research center were put to death on the same day last year, according to documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. In all, 27 primates at the Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, were euthanized on February 2, 2019, The Guardian reported. The animals were older, and most had Parkinson's disease, but animal-rights activists have condemned the decision to not find them a home.  They were not being used in research, but were held there by a private drug research company renting space at Ames. One member of Congress has called for an investigation into why the animals were put down.  Scroll down for video  All the monkeys (stock photo) at a NASA research center were put to death on the same day last year, according to documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request The animals 'were suffering...
    Sen. Rand Paul railed against the stimulus package and the lawmakers who planned to vote for it in a speech that has gone viral. "To so-called conservatives who are quick to identify the socialism of Democrats: If you vote for this spending monstrosity, you are no better," Paul said Monday on the Senate floor. "If free money were the answer, if money really grew on trees, why not give more free money?" he said. "Why not give it out all the time? Why stop at $600 a person? Why not $1,000? Why not $2,000? Maybe these new Free-Money Republicans should join the Everybody-Gets-A-Guaranteed-Income Caucus? Why not $20,000 a year for everybody? Why not $30,000? If we can print out money with impunity, why not do it?" Paul’s comments came ahead of lawmakers voting on the 5,600-page stimulus and government funding package. It ultimately passed both chambers and was...

    Screenshot of IVROSE's website.Megan Graham On Sunday, Elle Magazine dropped a story about a journalist who had found love with controversial former pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli. The story was an instant hit. But before long, one thing started to stand out among the story's many juicy details: an ad featuring a woman in drop-seat pajamas exposing half of her derriere. It was plastered multiple times on the story for many of its readers. Being a Sunday, I was reading the story on my phone, thumbing past the dozens (50, by my count) mobile ad placements. I started to notice I was seeing the same one over and over again. An ad for "IVRose" featured a woman in a plaid onesie pajama set, with one view from the front and one from the (partially exposed) backside, and the promise of a 70% off sale.  On Twitter, I saw I wasn't alone:...

    After the Giants finished 29-31 and missed the postseason by the narrowest of margins, president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi immediately set the target higher for 2021. Since assuming his role in November, 2018, Zaidi has been reluctant to publicly set lofty expectations, but entering his third year on the job, he acknowledged it would be a greater disappointment if the Giants failed to improve and missed the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season. A little more than two months after vowing to upgrade the team and better position the Giants to contend, the club has added seven new players to its 40-man roster. Only one of them, reliever Matt Wisler, has major league experience. One prospect, right-handed pitcher Dedniel Núñez, was chosen out of the New York Mets’ organization in Thursday’s Rule 5 Draft. Four other prospects –Alexander Canario, Gregory Santos, Kervin Castro and Camilo Doval–...
    VIDEO5:2505:25Buy, hold or sell: Traders discuss Airbnb after eye-popping IPOTrading Nation Airbnb exploded out of the gate in its market debut. The short-term rental and travel company rallied 113% on Thursday, its first day as a public company, closing with a market cap above $85 billion. By comparison, hotel operators InterContinental, Marriott and Hilton all have smaller market caps at less than $43 billion. Airbnb is also larger than travel booking site Expedia, and roughly equivalent to Booking's more than $86 billion market cap. Gina Sanchez, CEO of Chantico Global and chief market strategist at Lido Advisors, sees that market valuation as justified. "If you look at the network of Airbnb, Expedia has yet to get the kind of levels and volume that Airbnb has managed to garner through the building of its network. So those network benefits cannot be underestimated here," Sanchez told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Thursday. Matt...
    By Scott Akins and Clayton Mosher Oregon became the first state in the United States to decriminalize the possession of all drugs on Nov. 3, 2020. Measure 110, a ballot initiative funded by the Drug Policy Alliance, a nonprofit advocacy group backed in part by Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, passed with more than 58% of the vote. Possessing heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and other drugs for personal use is no longer a criminal offense in Oregon. [ READ: Where Is Marijuana Legal? A Guide to Marijuana Legalization ]Those drugs are still against the law, as is selling them. But possession is now a civil – not criminal – violation that may result in a fine or court-ordered therapy, not jail. Marijuana, which Oregon legalized in 2014, remains fully legal. Oregon's move is radical for the United States, but several European countries have decriminalized drugs to some extent. There are three main arguments for...
    Most people will be guilty of using bleach for all cleaning scenarios, from rubbing out a stubborn stain to cleaning the windows. But a professional cleaner has advised you should avoid it all together as it does more harm than good and can end up ruining grouting and bathroom tiles.  Kacie, from Melbourne, has shared a series of videos on TikTok revealing she uses washing up liquid for most tasks, including cleaning the shower, window and mirrors.

    Trump's allies are encouraging him to pardon himself and his family before he leaves office. But pardons can't actually save him from his legal troubles. Fox News host Sean Hannity, a major Donald Trump supporter and adviser of sorts, said Monday that Trump "needs to pardon his whole family and himself" before he leaves office — an admission that Trump faces legal peril when he again becomes a private citizen after President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20. "I assume that the power of the pardon is absolute and that he should be able to pardon anybody that he wants to," Hannity said on his radio program on Monday. Of course, it's unlikely that Trump has the power to pardon himself. A Department of Justice memo from 1974, just before Richard Nixon resigned in disgrace, stated: "Under the...

    Covid vaccines are like buses. You wait all year for one, and then three come along at once.  OK, so Christmas cracker jokes aside (is it too early? I don't think so) by now we all know the good news.  Last week it was announced that Oxford University's jab had come good: it prevents the infection in up to 90 per cent of people, making it as effective as the two others already proven to work. But unlike the others, it can be stored in a fridge, rather than a freezer, making it easier to distribute, and it's also been shown to work well in high-risk, older patients, which is key.  I was one of the 10,000 British volunteers on the Oxford vaccine trial so, obviously, I was utterly delighted. As a GP, but also as a mum, I suppose – like everyone – I just want life to return...

    KISSIMMEE, Florida – Puerto Rican-born Osceola County Commissioner Viviana Janer gave a full-throated endorsement of President-elect Joe Biden this election cycle. So she was surprised when President Trump gained 5 to 7 points in the predominantly Puerto Rican county near Orlando. She blames the Democrats. “You can’t treat all Hispanics, all Latinos, with the same message,” Janer told the Washington Examiner over a cup of Cuban coffee with milk at Buchito’s sandwich shop in downtown Kissimmee. “You have to customize to those subsets of the community that you are engaging their vote,” she insisted. Janer said she “spoke very loudly” about Trump’s perceived ill-treatment of Puerto Ricans after the hurricane as well as of issues where the president is perceived to be weak, including the pandemic response and healthcare. Cuban American Kissimmee Mayor Jose Alvarez told the Washington Examiner that Biden’s outreach to Hispanics in Florida failed....

    VAR technology may be baffling — but it is pretty simple when compared to this week’s parliamentary discussion on the game.  The main news coming out of it was FA chairman Greg Clarke’s resignation following unacceptable comments which do not reflect football’s community.  5Karren Brady writes exclusively for Sun SportCredit: PA 5She says Project Big Picture is all about money and power for the bigger clubsCredit: EPA Personally, I was amazed Clarke survived his first grilling by ministers, so no surprise with the outcome this time around.

    CBS The Big Brother All-Stars Cast There has been quite a bit of fallout for Big Brother 22 houseguests now that they are out of the Big Brother bubble because they got caught saying less than charitable things about each other on the live feeds.

    VIDEO3:3503:35Trading Nation: Why emerging markets could benefit from the election outcomeTrading Nation Emerging markets turned positive for the year this week, and Washington Crossing Advisors' Chad Morganlander said their performance could get even better. "We are overweight this sector for the first time in three years," Morganlander, a portfolio manager at his firm, told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Monday. "The big picture is that 85% of the global population is domiciled in emerging markets with less than 50% of global GDP. We see the emerging markets as better relative value as well as growth." While emerging markets could be impacted by the results of the U.S. election, Morganlander said his call is not tied to the outcome. Instead, he sees opportunity in the global economic recovery from the coronavirus crisis. "As we go into 2021 in the later half, we think that as Covid passes, global growth will reaccelerate, reemerge,...
    New York Yankees News/Rumors: Yankees outright Kahnle, why is the stove so hot? All the news in one place By: William Parlee November 1, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditTommy Kahnle and the New York Yankees may be parting ways The New York Yankees have outrighted Tommy Kahnle. Kahnle has been with the Yankees for four years; during that time, he has been one of the better Yankee relievers, going 6-3 with an ERA of 4.01. Last season he pitched in only one game before undergoing Tommy John surgery in August. Under most circumstances, that would mean that Kahnle would miss most if not all of the 2021 season. The Yankees decided to offer him an assignment to the minor leagues. Kahnle refused and opted for free agency. This action does not preclude him from being in pinstripes again, but it does allow him to...

As soon as we hung up our video call I knew I’d done the worst thing: instead of listening to how scared and sad she was, I had made my friend feel she was not allowed to feel bad about being made redundant from her job of eight years.

    On Thursday, as Trump releases the bits and pieces of his interview with 60 Minutes that he thinks make CBS look like a big meanie for not pitching him more “softballs,” there’s one topic that stands out. It appears that many of the pitches that came in too hot for Trump to handle were on one topic: COVID-19. It’s hard to understand why Trump would not want to spend a lot of top on this subject, since he’s been going around to this rallies and explaining that he’s saved millions of lives, everyone else was wrong, and if he had listened to Dr. Anthony Fauci hundreds of thousands more would be dead. However, that does seem to leave something a quandary in terms of that detail where more people have died of COVID-19 in the United States than any other nation on the planet, and are still dying at a rate that...

    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden has been in hiding for days and intends to remain in hiding at least until Thursday night’s presidential debate, and I think we all know why… Think about this… Joe Biden’s mental frailty, his position on packing the Supreme Court, and his son Hunter’s emails are so bad, he and his campaign believe he is better off hiding from the public than going out and campaigning during the final two weeks of the election. First, though, let’s talk about how outrageous it is for Biden to be so smug and secure in his victory, so smug and secure the national media will campaign on his behalf, that he thinks he can sit it out, hug the ball, run out the clock, while President Donald Trump is out there doing two and three events a day — while being president. Never before in my 54 years...
    Trust Sona Mohapatra to come up with the most savage replies. The Ambarsariya singer hates mincing her words and is known for being a strong feminist. While she’s often criticised for being too harsh with her words and for ‘targeting’ other celebrities, there are also times when she’s lauded for being herself and showing courage where it is needed.

    Judge Amy Coney Barrett ­acquitted herself very well at her confirmation hearings, which means, quite often, she refused to answer questions. Barrett is an exemplary nominee who was knowledgeable, clear and composed throughout the three days of questioning, but not always responsive. She can’t be blamed for this. She played the game as the rules have been established for decades and played it well. It is to take nothing away from her to wonder whether this longstanding norm of nominees running away from many substantive questions serves the Senate or the country well. The court has taken on an outsize role in our national life, while at the same time nominees say less than ever about their views during the one chance the senators have to vet them publicly. This is a bizarre disconnect. You’d think we’d want to hear more from a prospective member of a body that elections...
    CNN reporter Gary Tuchman interviewed a number of Trump supporters at a Florida rally and had them explain the different reasons why they refuse to wear a mask — even after the president was infected and hospitalized to treat his coronavirus diagnosis. During Anderson Cooper‘s Monday night show, he aired a report from the packed and non-socially distanced campaign rally in Sanford, Florida, where Tuchman talked with a number of maskless Trump supporters about their very public choice not to follow CDC guidelines. “If you thought that people would be more careful at rallies after hearing that Donald Trump had coronavirus and there was a super spreading event at the White House, you would be incorrect,” Tuchman said, leading off. “About 90% of people did not have masks. Every one had their temperatures checked and they were given hand sanitizer, and they were given masks and there were no mandate to...
    For those who took the time to check it out, a glimpse of a less-engineered Mississippi River was available in Minneapolis last week, when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lowered water levels below St. Anthony Falls. People frolicked on the river floor, which was visible under the Stone Arch Bridge, and enjoyed a much closer experience to river wildlife.  The slow drawdown was by 12 feet, beginning Saturday and completed Tuesday, and done so that the Army Corps of Engineers could inspect the upper and lower locks and dams at St. Anthony Falls. The river was then allowed to rise again after the inspection finished Thursday. Mississippi Watershed Management OrganizationOnly about a half-mile patch of the river was lowered, a single pool between the upper and lower St. Anthony locks. But it was enough of a vision of a wilder Mississippi River to spark curiosity. And an obvious question:...
    Tyler Crispen is the latest casualty on Big Brother All-Stars. The Hilton Head native was the former runner-up on Season 20 where he also captured the prize of America’s Favorite Player. BB viewers watched Tyler absolutely coast through during his debut year on the hit CBS reality series, but things weren’t so easy this time around. Tyler caught up with Entertainment Weekly after his eviction where he dished on the summer’s events and why All-Stars was a completely different experience than BB20. For his first summer on the show, Tyler became famous for creating final two deals with almost everyone in the house. This was something that catapulted him to the end but ultimately cost him the grand prize because too many jurors were upset with his broken promises. “That was something I was trying to avoid this time because it cost me votes on my original season. So I...
    When the pandemic began its rampage through America in March, one might have wondered which American or Americans would be most zealously protected from the coronavirus. The obvious answer, of course, would have been the President of the United States. After all, the nation’s chief executive is the only person with an entire government department dedicated to his protection. Keeping the head of state safe from threats, be they an assassin’s bullets or a deadly virus, is a national security priority. Certainly the Secret Service and White House medical staff would do everything necessary to keep him safe. That would have been a sensible answer, but it would have been wrong. As it turned out the most protected people in America were LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Jimmy Butler, and all the other men and women who played in the NBA and WNBA bubbles.

    As documented by WrestlingNews.co, WWE legend Marty Jannetty took to his Facebook this week and shared a picture of an email he received from Jamaica Hospital Medical Center. He then explained that he was there because he was assaulted by New York City police officers. According to the former WWE superstar — who was one-half of The Rockers tag team alongside Shawn Michaels in the 1980s and early ’90s — the officers took his phone. He then went on to explain what happened. “I was in front of JFK airport trying to go home..they jumped me from behind.. I locked one of them up (arms stiff waving at heaven) when you in NYC and get jumped from behind, you probably getting robbed…the Dr apologized, said mistaken identity.. I liked him, was very nice to me..my boy Nicholas Masci came back and got me to the airport..but..dude where’s my phone?” Jannetty...

Recent discussions of racial inequality within fashion have resulted in an outpouring of initiatives with the the goal of turning a tangible page on the inequitable structures in place throughout the industry. The past four months have birthed collectives such as the Black in Fashion Council, the Black Fashion & Beauty Collective, the Kelly Initiative, RAISEfashion, and designer Aurora James’s 15 Percent Pledge — in addition to renewed attention on the work of Harlem Fashion Row and new equality measures put forth from the Council of Fashion Designers of America, reinvigorated by CaSandra Diggs, the council’s first Black president.

    Pretending to be working, an ailing Donald Trump puts his signature on what close-ups show is a blank piece of paper. Night Owls, a themed open thread, appears at Daily Kos seven days a week At Common Dreams, Julia Conley writes—As Covid-Positive GOP Politicians Enjoy Healthcare They 'Would Deny Others,' Coronavirus Pandemic Again Makes Case for Medicare for All: The case for Medicare for All was once again made by the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, Sen. Ed Markey tweeted on Sunday, after Republican politicians including President Donald Trump were able to check themselves into hospitals shortly after announcing they had tested positive for Covid-19. Markey noted that throughout the coronavirus pandemic, in which more than 7.4 million caseshave been detected and more than 209,000 people in the U.S. have died, people have attempted to get care at hospitals after testing positive and showing worsening symptoms,only to be turned away and "told...
    Stephanie Keith/ZUMA Wire For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.Seventeen Republicans and an independent libertarian voted on Friday against a resolution to condemn QAnon—the outlandish conspiracy theory that claims a cabal of liberal elite pedophiles is running a child sex trafficking ring and is locked in a battle with President Donald Trump, who is trying to stop them. This is a new escalation in congressional Republicans’ flirtation with QAnon. The vote comes as an increasing amount of QAnon-supporting congressional candidates have run in and even won primary races around the country. Most have little-to-no shot at winning in November, though Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican running for a House seat in Georgia, has a likely shot of winning her race, and Lauren Boebert, a Republican running in Colorado for a House seat, has a shot at winning hers as well. The possibility of their...
    A French school teacher said he’s no longer allowed to teach kindergarten students after parents complained that his tattoos, which cover his body, face, tongue and even eyes, scared their child. Sylvain Helaine, 35, who teaches students six and older, says most of his students see past his appearance and are “cool” with it, according to Reuters. “All of my students and their parents were always cool with me because basically they knew me,” Helaine said. “It’s only when people see me from far away that they can assume the worst.” TOPSHOT – French primary school teacher and tattoo enthusiast Sylvain Helaine, known as Freaky Hoody, poses during a photo session in Palaiseau, a south of Paris suburb, on September 22, 2020.

    The big takeaway from the shocking New York Times report about President Donald Trump’s taxes, according to Joe Scarborough, is that it shows the president is the least successful business person in American history. At the outset of Monday’s Morning Joe, Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski took a series of pointed shots at the president’s business IQ. “Think of all the money he lost over the years,” Brzezinski said. “I mean, talk about the biggest loser. Never seen a worse businessman in my life.” Scarborough interjected to note that some might find it hyperbole to call Trump the “biggest loser.” But the MSNBC host argued that the numbers prove it out. “He lost more money than any other American citizen,” Scarborough said. “And the amazing thing is his daddy gave him the equivalent of $400 million, and he lost all of that. Bankruptcies right and left. Then, as he...
    Amy Coney Barrett regards herself as an “originalist,” that is, someone who believes that all legal decisions must be based on the “original understanding” of the Constitution. This is often put forward as a straightforward, consistent lens through which law can be viewed, rather than trying to put into context little things like shifting views on race and gender equality. However, originalism is further complicated by a split between groups focused on “intent” and those focused on “meaning.” And if you think those are the same things … well, you’re just wrong. Intentionalists believe the law is determined by what the original authors of the Constitution intended when they took quill to parchment. Those focused on meaning insist that they support the “public meaning” of the words at the time they were written. People who, like Barrett, belong to the later group, insist that their interpretation is more consistent. In fact, both approaches...
    Big Brother legend Dr. Will Kirby revealed himself to the All-Stars houseguests Thursday night as their new next-door neighbor. He will be participating in the Neighbor Week twist, which will see prizes as well as powers given in the week’s Head of Household (HOH) and Power of Veto (POV) competitions. Many were ecstatic to see Dr. Will come back to the game, especially given the theme of the summer. Dr. Will caught up with Us Weekly after his big reveal last night and explained why he wasn’t inside the house with the rest of the returnees for BB22. “Well, while placing no judgment on people who are playing this season, I personally didn’t feel like I could leave my family or take an absence from my career obligations right now,” he admitted. “Disappearing for three months wasn’t something that made sense to me personally. But I of course wanted to...

For me, it’s lip gloss. If you know me well, you know that my ringtone in middle school was “Lip Gloss” by Lil Mama. You also know that I would go to the mall not for clothes, but just to restock on glosses. My aunt used to say it looked like I rubbed grease across my lips. But my friends and I thought otherwise as we shared the latest additions to our growing collections in the school hallways. Fast forward to today, and friends tease me for applying it mid-FaceTime catch-up, with a, “Girl, where do you think you’re going?” tone. But I don’t need...
    Recently, I spent a rainy day binge-watching Amazon’s Little Fires Everywhere. It’s a tangled tale of mothers and daughters disastrously misunderstanding one another. Reese Witherspoon plays a smug mother in a perfect town, clashing with Kerry Washington’s single mother, Mia. Yet aside from the dramatic storylines, one of the most satisfying things about it was that both Witherspoon and Washington are well into their 40s, convincingly old enough to have given birth to their teenage on-screen children. Looking, by turns, bare-faced, puffy and exhausted, you believe that they’ve been through the maternal mill. But in the world of Hollywood, that’s a rarity. 1 YEAR GAP: Angelina Jolie (left) as mother to Colin Farrell's character (right), Olympias and Alexander in Alexander The Great, 2004 RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next OLIVIA BUXTON: Why I'm risking a pregnancy at 48 after...

    Submit your letter to the editor via this form. Read more Letters to the Editor. Gov. Gavin Newsom isn’t to blame for state’s fires I’m confused as to why people like Chris Panasuk (“What’s Newsom’s plan for next wildfire season?” Sept. 15) sound like they are blaming Gov. Gavin Newsom for the fires and response in California. Newsom isn’t to blame for the fires, limited and overworked responders, and resources, any more than he’s responsible for climate change and global warming. If you watched President Trump in Sacramento discussing and denying the reason for fires (forest clearing mismamagement) and stating he doesn’t believe in science and reassuring us “it’s getting cooler,” you’d know what the real problem is. Four more years of his “leadership” will ensure more of the same, only worse every year to come. Lynda Martinez San Jose Project Welcome Home is a county success story In 2015,...
    President Donald Trump again mocked Joe Biden for wearing a mask and asked a crowd in Pittsburgh why the Democrat would spend 'all that money on the plastic surgery' to cover up his face.  'He feels good about the mask,' Trump riffed. 'I wonder in the debate, it will be him and I the stage, is he going to walk in with a mask?'   The president had his predominantly mask-less audience in stitches, as he poked fun at Biden for mask-wearing on the same day that marked more than 200,000 Americans dying of COVID-19.  President Donald Trump ridiculed Democrat Joe Biden for wearing a mask to prevent the spread of coronavirus, telling a crowd in Pittsburgh he wonders why Biden spent ''all that money on the plastic surgery' and then covers up his face  Medical experts say masks can prevent the spread of the coronavirus.   'I'll be honest, he feels...
